Fiction Writing and Publication
Have you dreamt of writing a novel, but aren’t sure how to begin? Kathryn Knight, a bestselling and award-winning author of romance, suspense, and young adult novels, will teach the elements of successful fiction writing and outline the various options in this rapidly changing publishing industry. Key concepts such as POV, the hook, goal-motivation-conflict, and character development will be discussed. Idea inspiration, common pitfalls, and query letters will also be covered. Finally, avenues to publication – from self-publishing to small and digital presses to seeking agent representation – will be explored. Kathryn’s recent novel, a romance/ghost story entitled Gull Harbor, has been a #1 Amazon Bestseller in several categories. Nobel prize-winning author, Toni Morrison, wrote, “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” Join this class and get started!!!
